Can You Cure Gum Disease?

Can you Cure Gum Disease?

Can you cure gum disease? That’s a question you may be asking if you have gingivitis or periodontitis.

The good news is that with daily performed self-care treatments, gingivitis (early gum disease) can be cured. However, the more advanced form of gum disease (periodontitis) cannot be reversed but it can be prevented from progressing further. 

This post aims to explain how you can cure gingivitis and prevent periodontitis from progressing further. 

Gingivitis and Periodontitis

Periodontal disease (sometimes referred to as gum disease) is a group of inflammatory diseases triggered by plaque bacteria accumulating along the gumline. It’s characterized by red, bleeding and inflamed gums in the early stages (gingivitis). When left untreated it can progress. When advanced periodontal pockets develop, bone loss occurs and teeth become at risk of falling out. In some cases, people may also experience dental abscesses which can be painful.  

Gingivitis can be cured and periodontitis can be prevented from progressing further.

How To Cure Gingivitis and Prevent Progression of Periodontitis

To cure gum disease we need to disrupt the bacteria daily at home. This allows the gums can heal and return to a state of good health.  

The best way to disrupt the plaque each day is with daily self-care treatments. This includes good oral hygiene and in some cases, it’s helpful to make a few lifestyle changes.

Daily Self-Performed Care

Oral health experts around the world recommend that you

  1. Brush your teeth twice a day for 2 minutes.
  2. Use an electric toothbrush – ensure that you’re using the correct technique to get the most out of your electric brush
  3. Change the head once every three months
  4. Carefully clean the interdental spaces using the correct technique. You can use a gum pocket brush, interdental brushes, floss, water flossers or a combination. 

Reduce Your Risk – Making Lifestyle Choices Can Help Fix Gum Disease

Several lifestyle choices can enable bacteria to thrive within the mouth. For self-care treatments to be as effective as possible, making some changes may be beneficial. This will make it more difficult for bacteria to thrive in the mouth. We recommended the following.

Stop Smoking

Smoking is one of the biggest causes of gum disease and tooth loss around the world. Nicotine constricts the blood vessels so the symptoms of bleeding and redness are often not present. This means that smokers don’t realize they have the early stages of gum disease and it progresses to periodontitis.  Reducing or ideally, stopping smoking gives your gums the best chance of recovering. 

Control Sugar Levels

If you have diabetes you are probably aware that you are at an increased risk of developing gum disease. Controlling blood sugars will help your gums to heal by reducing the amount of sugar in your saliva. This reduction of glucose in the saliva will help remove the bacteria’s food source and help your gums to heal.

Consume Sugar Less Frequently

Bacteria love sugar. When you eat sugar frequently it provides the bacteria with an endless supply of energy. The bacteria thrive. They produce acid that causes cavities and other products such as toxins which irritate the gums and ligaments that hold the teeth in place. These toxins also activate the body’s immune system which leads to the destruction of the alveolar bone that creates a stable bed for the teeth to sit in. Eating less sugar will help your gums to recover. 

Eat a healthy diet

It’s not just about removing sugar from your diet. It’s also about giving the teeth and bones the nutrients and vitamins they need. This ensures the gums and structures that hold the teeth in place are strong and healthy.  Eat a diet full of calcium and vitamin C. Also, ensure that you get an adequate supply of vitamin D from the sun or supplements.

Drink Water

Nutritionists and dentists recommend that we drink water throughout the day. It helps to wash away bacteria from the body and mouth. It also helps ensure our mouths are moist and adequate saliva is produced. Saliva helps wash away bacteria and creates an environment that’s less hospitable to bacteria.

Treating Advanced Periodontal Disease

To ensure your daily performed self-care treatments are effective, you may also need some professional gum health treatments. 

It’s difficult to disrupt and remove bacteria from the deep periodontal (gum) pockets and from tooth roots at home. Visiting a dental expert is advisable. Dental experts are able to remove plaque and tartar from below the gum line enabling the gums to heal fully.

Dental experts can also provide an expert diagnosis of your condition. They can provide gum health therapies and surgical treatments that will restore the health of your gums. 


Plaque bacteria in the mouth triggers gum disease. Daily performed self-care treatments that include developing and maintaining good oral hygiene are the most effective way to cure gum disease. They prevent periodontitis from progressing further as well.
